How do you feel about shoveling snow?

Yeah, we aren’t a fan either. However, you can turn this chore into a workout to make it more exciting! Be sure to shovel safely with these tips from Health Magazine.

  • Do a proper warmup- If you just woke up, wait roughly an hour before going outside to shovel
  • Use the right muscles
  • Hold the shovel correctly
  • Don’t twist and throw
  • Take breaks — Try not to be out there for more than 40 minutes
  • Strength train regularly
  • To make shoveling a workout, do lunges or squats into each shovel of snow. You can also carry piles of snow further to get extra steps in.
